Woolacombe is one of North Devon’s most beautiful beaches, popular with families and surfers alike. The beach runs south from the town for about two miles. Cafes and shops are to hand in the town and access is straightforward, either down two paths or over the dunes to the beach. This is a fine place for a long stroll by the water. There is plenty of parking, so you can be on the sand in no time. With a convenient town at the north end of the beach, there is the best of both worlds here.
